Using found footage, this installation presents televisions that broadcast different channels to a point where its content saturates and turns the installation into a pure noise source.
This installation is inspired by the Big Bang's afterglow presence in old TV sets' static, an ancient force reflecting on our devices to send a message that humans can perceive only as noise. Moreover, it also takes inspiration from the 1977 launching of two golden records containing images and sounds that originated on Earth but that extraterrestrial creatures could speculatively also interpret as noise.
In this sense, this piece presents a fictional scenario where the two forms of communication meet and negotiate each other's language.
